Description

My second Renfrew maxi dress. I love wearing these on hot summer days!

I used the Sewaholic Renfrew pattern and converted it to a maxi using a RTW maxi as a guide. I used the Renfrew for the top half and drew an A-line skirt extending from the waist for the bottom half. Easiest pattern hack ever – give it a try!

I also scooped out the neckline a bit and drafted “sleevettes” (angled sleeve bands) to add some interest.
